Once the selections are locked in, our focus will shift to potential prospects who will be selected by the teams at the top of the draft.

This year featured a plethora of talent. It can be conceived that each team holding a lottery pick will undoubtedly acquire a player who can come in and contribute immediately.

The draft combine featured plenty of that talent.

Even though Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker and Joel Embiid didn't participate, other lottery prospects put on some dazzling shows in Chicago.

Dante Exum could certainly wind up as a top-three selection after his showing at the combine.

He wowed teams and media with a high level of maturity during his interviews. One onlooker who came away impressed was's Alex Kennedy, according to his tweet:

Not only did Exum flourish during the interview process, but he put up some gaudy numbers during on-court drills.

ESPN Stats & Info tweeted a great speed comparison of Exum to top-tier NBA talent:

Two other prospects who really helped themselves were Aaron Gordon and Zach LaVine.

Both players' athleticism shined during the combine, and that was noted by this tweet from ESPN Stats & Info:

Once the lottery is finalized, we'll know the complete pecking order of this year's draft.

Everyone is wondering which of these prospects will be their team's newest addition.

We'll know soon enough.
